A: Pours Blacker then the blackest black times infinity. A dryed blood color finger of head.

S: smells of BLACK Coffee and Rotting Farmhouse yeast! and some boozyness...

T: hell fire roasted Cocoa, slight festering malts and yeast and vanilla bean tears ov dying angels

M: thick as blood with a generous amount ov carbonation

This brew was defiantly spawned from the darkest pits ov hell to pay homage to Black Metal and SATAN! \m/

This pours black as night with some foam atop it. There’s big aromas of roast coffee, some smoke and fruit—not citrus or tropical fruits, rather dark fruits, stone fruits. I get roasty coffee and thick toffee flavors, some espresso and dark cherries, bitter chocolates, and a boozy finish. Flavors are sharp and focused, with a crisp, hoppy bitterness for any sort of imperial stout. A big boy and bad to the bone. I like it.

A farmhouse imperial stout? I’m not sure my palate is astute enough to detect the differences between this and their (um, regular?) imperial stout. More investigation is needed, as they say in research journals!

Best of the bunch here so and by far! Served with a llight brown head that lingered to the bottom and was superbly balanced. Color is an opaque black brown with a light brown head that subsided at the same rate as the glass emptied. Aroma is a pleasant roast, malt, slight fruit. Flavor's like malt, nothing out of sorts. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, of a shorter length, and incredibly drinkable for, not only a beer of its class, but relative to all and just a work of art. All hail!

Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours black with a two-finger length dark tan head that dissipates slowly. The is no lacing, but I do get some alcohol legs. The aroma is of farmhouse yeast, dark roasted barley malt, chocolate, coffee, anise, dark fruits, and maybe a little alcohol. The beer tastes of those classic RIS flavors from the dark roasted barley malt as well as coffee and chocolate. In the back end, you get some of that farmhouse yeast flavor. I get those dark fruits, cherries, and anise notes as well. It's sweet, but not too sweet. There is some alcohol as well. It all comes together to be well-balanced. The aftertaste doesn't linger long, but it is of mild chocolate. The body is medium with strong carbonation due to the bottle conditioning. The finish is slightly dry. It's an easy sipper. This is an excellent beer.
